Book Signing:
Pete Fromm
If Not For This

Saturday, October 25
7:00 PM

Author Pete Fromm will be reading and signing his new work If Not For This, Saturday, October 25, 7:00 PM at The Grizzly Claw Trading Company in downtown Seeley Lake. Refreshments will be served.

Returning to the untamed rivers of the West, If Not For This, is a stunning novel of love and the wild places it takes us.

After meeting at a boatman's bash on the Snake River, river runners Maddy and Dalt embark on a lifelong love affair. They marry on the banks of the Buffalo Fork, sure they'll live there the rest of their days. Forced by the economics of tourism to leave Wyoming, they start a new adventure, opening their own river business in Ashland, Oregon: They prosper there, leading rafting trips and guiding fishermen into the wilds of Mongolia and Russia. But when Maddy, laid low by dizzy spells with a mono that isn't quite mono, both discovers she is pregnant and is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, they realize their adventure is just beginning. Navigating hazards that dwarf any of the rapids they've faced together. If Not For This is a love story like no other.

Pete Fromm is a four time winner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Literary Award for his novels As Cool As I Am and How All This Started, a story collection, Dry Rain, and the memoir, Indian Creek Chronicles. As Cool As I Am is also a feature film starring Claire Danes, James Marsden and Sarah Bolger. Pete is the author of four other short story collections. He is on the faculty of Pacific University's low-residency MFA writing program. He lives in Montana with his wife and two sons.
